PROJECT PROFILES

Legacy Plaza unites seven nonprofits in a three-building complex featuring renovated exteriors with Tubelite’s energy-efficient systems

The property originally was constructed in 1975, prior to the advent of commercial window systems with high-performance, low-e, insulated glazing and thermally broken framing members. Along with its non-thermally broken frames and existing 0.25-inch clear, monolithic glass with a reflective bronze film, time and weather had caused the caulking and seals to deteriorate.

Miller Hull Partnership-designed Del Mar Civic Center celebrates community and sustainability

Miller Hull Partnership’s award-winning Del Mar Civic Center includes a 3,000-square-foot Town Hall, a 9,000-square-foot City Hall, a 13,000-square-foot Town Commons, and parking. The area’s mild climate means that the complex essentially functions off-the-grid (the complex was designed for net zero operations); passive ventilation provides cooling (windows are programmed to open when appropriate), site water is captured for reuse, and a rooftop solar array and battery system account for approximately 75% of all electrical use.

HyVee Arena’s modern sports complex repurposes historic building, with high-performance, custom-color finishes and thermal improvement

As a single source solution to Tubelite Inc., Linetec provided both the high-performance architectural coatings in the historically approved color and the thermal improvement services for HyVee Arena’s new entrance, storefront and interior aluminum framing systems. Viracon’s glass further enhanced the aesthetic and the glazing systems’ high solar, thermal and optical performance.

East Carolina University renovates, expands football stadium with Tubelite’s doors, windows, curtainwall and storefront

Designed by architectural firm LS3P Associates Ltd. of Wilmington, North Carolina, the Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium southside renovation project team also involved AECOM and the joint venture general contractors of TA Loving Co. and Frank L. Blum Construction Co. Early in the project’s development, Apogee Renovation consulted on high-performance glass, aluminum framing and window system solutions that included Tubelite’s products.

W. R. MEADOWS on campus at the University of Arizona

The University of Arizona Bioscience Research was designed by ZGF Architects and BWS Architects, and the general contractor was DPR Construction. “An air barrier and numerous waterproofing products were needed for this project, “states Greg Neundorfer, the W. R. MEADOWS salesperson in charge of this project. “There were also multiple transitions between these products that needed to be addressed.” Products used in this project had a tall order to meet; they had to work well with a variety of substrates. The blindside product chosen was PRECON®, the positive-side below-grade was MEL-ROL™, the hot-applied material was HRM 714, and the cold-applied material was HYDRALASTIC™ 836.

The LEGO Group opens new campus in Billund, Denmark

The LEGO Group’s new, state-of-the-art campus, designed by C.F. Møller Architects, will span 54,000 square meters and house more than 2,000 employees when it is finished in 2021. Sustainability is a core tenet for the LEGO Group, referred to as the “Planet Promise.” For example, the rooftops of the new buildings are covered with Sedum plants which absorb water and CO2, and rainwater will be used to irrigate the green parks in the campus area.

Contemporary, curvy curtainwall creates comfortable, sustainable, luxury residences using Technoform’s thermal barrier strip and warm edge spacer

Designed by Pappageorge Haymes Partners, 465 North Park Apartments’ curved, jewel-like exterior is comprised of several EFCO products. EFCO relied on a combination of Technoform’s polyamide thermal barrier and plastic hybrid stainless steel (PHSS) warm edge TGI®-Spacer M to meet the project’s specified aesthetics, thermal performance, durability and sustainability.

Vertically expanded Philadelphia office renovation re-clad in glass and aluminum with wood grain finishes by Linetec

The new design of Philadelphia’s 2400 Market Street property was conceived by architecture firm Gensler, with Varenhorst serving as the executive architect. The renovated and expanded building was re-clad in a modern, high-performance façade. Its fresh exterior showcases Viracon’s glass within Wausau Window and Wall Systems’ aluminum-framed window wall system finished by Linetec.

Port Authority’s transit station’s glass canopy custom-engineered and fabricated by EXTECH

Pittsburgh-based EXTECH worked closely with architect Greg Maynes, from concept to completion. The 1,473-square-foot, low-rise, segmented, glass canopy features three taller sections overlapping three shorter sections. Maynes explained, “These two types of canopies could be scaled to form different station sizes. The station’s asymmetrical columns resemble a tree structure supporting the cantilevered glass canopies.”

Raisbeck Aviation High School (RAHS) in Tukwila, Wash.

Raisbeck Aviation High School (RAHS) in Tukwila, Wash., designed by Bassetti Architects, is adjacent to an airport and located on the Museum of Flight campus. The theme for the school grew out of the district’s proximity to a growing aviation industry that was experiencing a shortage of technical workers and career specialists in the profession. Overall, the new school embodies the culmination of the program’s evolution – from the curriculum to the site design.

Franklin Tower transforms former offices into luxury living, re-clad in glass and metal with wood grain finishes from Linetec

Gensler looked at developing an adaptive façade to replace the outdated precast, single-glazed strip-window façade. “While that exterior was built for a single use, the rhythm of the new façade allows for a variety of programmatic uses,” said Gensler Principal Robert Fuller, AIA. “The recessed channels at the vertical columns and horizontal spandrels express the structural module of the building, while the floor-to-ceiling glass creates a lighter façade that connects the interior spaces to views of the city beyond.”
